I have lived in the area for years and always wanted to go to Sally's. We recently drove by at 5:30 pm and saw no line so we hurriedly park the car and decided to give the pizza a try. We peered in and saw 3 empty booths, but were told wait outside. After a 15 minute, the waiter cleared... More

Not sure what has happened to this once great New Haven destination but this was the WORST dining experience i have EVER had!!! The line was too long at Frank Pepe's so we decided to hit Sally's. What a mistake ! Shorter line but still a wait but we expected that. We were finally seated and the waiter took forever-... More

I love pizza and I went there twice: the first time totally regretted having chosen the place recommended by a local dweller. Lunch time: blah pizza, the place seemed dirty, the waiting time for the food to arrive was ridiculously long and all in all the place was absolutely not up to all the fuzz and fame. Not cheap, by...

Apizza has t be the best pizza in New Haven. They serve both red and white(without tomato sauce) thin crust styles with a variety of toppings. You cann taste the old style baking oven they use rather than the quickly prepared fast fod style pizzas commonly available Very casual place moderately priced.

We haven't been to Sally's in 20 years. It was a place we went often in our youth and was concerned that it would not live up to our memories. It was just as good as we remembered. The crust was nice and thin. The sauce was delicious. The toppings were well done, not overwhelming. The garden special had a... More

Sally's (Salvatore's in case you wonder) apizza is, like Pepe's along the street, "the" place for pizza. It is said that pizza originated here. In any case, it is the place to find out what a pizza should taste like, and never mind the bit of charring. Only problem, the long queue, long wait, so bring along something to occupy... More

This is hands down my favorite pizza on the east coast. I drive 2 hours often to enjoy the amazing crust and delicious toppings. Very simple old style menu and one server working non stop. You would like the retro ambiance. Be prepared to wait in line to sit.

We've been going to Sally's for over 30 years and have never been disappointed! Our favorite pizzas include the white pizza with thinly sliced zucchini, onions, and tomatoes. a red bacon and onion, and white clam--all with mozzarella. The crust is thin and crisp. No salad or wine is offered but there are beer and soda on the menu. If... More

You don't go to Sally's for the service, you go for the apizza. Hands down the best I've ever had. Don't sweat the toppings, even a red mozz will knock you out of your seat. Note to the editor: the name of the restaurant is "Sally's Apizza".

After having pizzas from almost all places in new haven, I feel they have the best pizza in new haven. It is thin crust pizza and the place has an old-school charm. They have limited options in terms of toppings, but they do it well. Cash only and expect wait times.
